Art on Tuesday: Playing

toyokuni

A woman with two children, playing around. This is a funny ukiyo-e by Utagawa Toyokuni 歌川 豐國 (1769-1825). The elder child is hiding under the kimono and the younger child is on the arms of her mother. The baby wears a kimono with a similar pattern as the dress of the woman, so that one sees it on the second glance. All three are having fun, what a nice scene!
